    I'm surprised this is using the PowerVR 540. Is the Ram making it perform like this compared to the Galaxy S?

    The Exynos....I'm sure its an update away from having better performance.

    The SGX540 in this phone is running at 300MHz (iirc,) rather than the typical 200MHz, which accounts for some 3D performance. And yes, the dual-channel RAM on the O3D means it can access memory pretty much twice as fast, which would account for most of the rest.

    Have any of the benchmarking programs been properly updated for dual core yet?
    I bet in terms of user experience the difference will only be academic?

    Optimus 3d only have 512mb(4Gb not 4GB) of ram. im sure 1gb of ram will help s2 more then Optimus 3d.

    Well, 1GB of RAM will let the S2 perform better in situations where more than 512MB is needed, which is quite a feat on a smartphone.

    The dual-channel RAM in the O3D means it can access 512MB twice as fast as the S2 can, meaning it will have a performance increase pretty much all the time.

    I'd rather have 1GB memory instead of dual-channel though. Phones are pushing that 512MB barrier and that 1GB will always be useful. I wonder why the companies tout the performance of their dual-core chips so much but don't get behind a professional benchmarking suite to add dual-core support and have bragging rights with real numbers. That's what AMD/ATI and Nvidia do with Futuremark scores. Maybe less so now.
